Three types of searches

Three main categories of searches that may prove fruitful, whether searching in our catalog or in journal databases:

thematic searches, such as the life of Jesus, or Son of Man, or the Pharisees, or the influence of Jewish thought on the Gospel of Matthew, or poverty;

textual searches, where you'll look for resources writing about a particular literary unit, such as the Gospel of John or a more specific chapter and verse

genre searches, such as parables, gospels, Synoptic Gospels, etc.
